The Soul Motivators wsg DJ Trevor Walker

The Rainbow Bistro, 76 Murray Street, Ottawa/ Byward Market

Since the release of their explosive Do Right full-length debut 'Free to Believe' (2015), The Soul Motivators tirelessly toured to bring their high-octane live show to the masses. The acclaimed 'Dirt On the Floor' EP and collaboration with Detroit’s Funk Night Records saw the release of two highly sought-after 7” singles and dig deep into the funk crates. Now, they’re back and ready with their fourth studio album, 'Do it Together' on Do Right! Music.This 8-track album takes the listener on a cosmic trip filled with groove and optimism guided through aural landscapes. Imagine the Toronto Yonge Street strip in the 70s. Flares, arcades, neon, cinema, record shops – grit and funk with modern beats and rich rhythm infuse each track to lift you up and get you moving – floating into outer space yet deeply rooted on solid ground.

The Soul Motivators have shared stages with greats like Lee Fields, Bernie Worrell, Third Coast Kings, Grandmaster Flash, and Afrika Bambaataa. They have electrified crowds at Toronto Jazz Festival, TEDx. Radio DJs worldwide including Craig Charles of BBC Radio 6 have embraced their uniquely Canadian funk sound.
